MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Two Milwaukee police officers were hurt when their squad car slid on a snow-covered street and hit a tree.
It happened just before 6 p.m. Monday, while the officers were driving to a place where another officer was chasing a suspect on foot.
A witness told WISN-TV that one of the injured officers made it out of the damaged squad car, and helped the other officer who was driving. Both were taken to Froedtert Hospital.
The crash is still being investigated.
It didn't snow very much Monday in southern Wisconsin -- just two-and-a-half inches at the most -- but it was still enough for two people to be killed after their vehicles slid in Dane County.
